Hi

I'm having problems - Hijack This, regedit and msconfig all shut down very quickly after I open them, and I can't connect to the internet either. I managed to get a log before Hijack This shut down, can somebody take a look and let me know what to do?

Hi fcgrool

Download HostsXpert and unzip it to your desktop.

Open HostsXpert that you earlier unzipped on your desktop
  • Click "Make Hosts Writable?" upper right corner (if available)
  • Click "Restore Microsoft's Original Hosts File" and then click OK
  • Close HostsXpert
Note; IF you used any custom Hosts (eg. MVPS Hosts), you will have put them back manually

Boot in safe mode

Open HijackThis, click do a system scan only and checkmark these:

F3 - REG:win.ini: load=C:\WINDOWS\system32\rkonhjt\services.exe
F3 - REG:win.ini: run=C:\WINDOWS\system32\rkonhjt\services.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Alcmtr] ALCMTR.EXE
O4 - Startup: services.lnk = ?


Close all windows including browser and press fix checked.

Please do a search:
  • Go "Start">"Search">"All Files and Folders"
  • Enter services.lnk in "All or part of file name"
  • Select "More advanced options"
  • Check-mark "Search System Folders", "Search hidden files and folders", and "Search subfolders".
  • Click "Search". Right click the file and select delete.
Empty Recycle Bin.

NOTE: That file may not exist at all! If it doesn't, just skip the step above.

Delete this:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\rkonhjt

Empty Recycle Bin

Reboot

Post a fresh HijackThis log.

Hi Shaba, thanks for your help. I got an error message when fixing the checked entries: - Unexpected error occured! Error #52 (Bad file name or number) in Sub GetLongPath(?.exe) and then:- Unable to delete the file: O4 - Startup: services.lnk = ? The file may be in use. Use Task Manager to shutdown the program and run Hijack This again to delete the file Shall I carry on with the rest of your instructions, or do you want me to do something else?

Ok, I did everything except C:\WINDOWS\system32\rkonhjt wasn't there so I couldn't delete it.

Hi

It is there, it just might be hidden :)

Make your hidden and system files visible -> http://www.xtra.co.n...1916458,00.html and try again, please.

If you can find it, please delete it.

Also, were you able to find services.lnk using search function? It should look like shortcut. I ask because this line -> O4 - Startup: services.lnk = ? is still there.

These two steps are essential:

Select "More advanced options"
Check-mark "Search System Folders", "Search hidden files and folders", and "Search subfolders"

Hi Shaba

I thought I had deleted services.lnk but I guess not! I've deleted it now.

I also found and deleted C:\WINDOWS\system32\rkonhjt.

Hi

That's great news :)

Please do an online scan with Kaspersky Online Scanner. You will be prompted to install an ActiveX component from Kaspersky, Click Yes.
  • The program will launch and then start to download the latest definition files.
  • Once the scanner is installed and the definitions downloaded, click Next.
  • Now click on Scan Settings
  • In the scan settings make sure that the following are selected:

    o Scan using the following Anti-Virus database:

    + Extended (If available otherwise Standard)

    o Scan Options:

    + Scan Archives
    + Scan Mail Bases

  • Click OK
  • Now under select a target to scan select My Computer
  • The scan will take a while so be patient and let it run. Once the scan is complete it will display if your system has been infected.
  • Now click on the Save as Text button
  • Save the file to your desktop.
  • Copy and paste that information in your next post.

Hi

Then you're clean!

Now that you are clean, please follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:

Go here and download and install JRE 6.0. Click the link that says Download JRE 6.0 . You will then need to select Accept License Agreement and click the Continue button that is beside it. Then click the link that says Windows Offline Installation, Multi-language. Save it to your Desktop. Then go back to your Desktop and double click jre-6-windows-i586.exe to start the install. Once you have it installed, click Start>Run, type in appwiz.cpl and hit Enter. From the list, uninstall J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 9.
  • Disable and Enable System Restore. - If you are using Windows XP then you should disable and re-enable system restore to make sure there are no infected files found in a restore point.

    You can find instructions on how to enable and reenable system restore here:


    Windows XP System Restore Guide
Reenable system restore with instructions from tutorial above
  • Make your Internet Explorer more secure - This can be done by following these simple instructions:
  • From within Internet Explorer click on the Tools menu and then click on Options.
  • Click once on the Security tab
  • Click once on the Internet icon so it becomes highlighted.
  • Click once on the Custom Level button.
  • Change the Download signed ActiveX controls to Prompt
  • Change the Download unsigned ActiveX controls to Disable
  • Change the Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe to Disable
  • Change the Installation of desktop items to Prompt
  • Change the Launching programs and files in an IFRAME to Prompt
  • Change the Navigate sub-frames across different domains to Prompt
  • When all these settings have been made, click on the OK button.
  • If it prompts you as to whether or not you want to save the settings, press the Yes button.
  • Next press the Apply button and then the OK to exit the Internet Properties page.
  • Use an AntiVirus Software - It is very important that your computer has an anti-virus software running on your machine. This alone can save you a lot of trouble with malware in the future.

See this link for a listing of some online & their stand-alone antivirus programs:

Virus, Spyware, and Malware Protection and Removal Resources

  • Update your AntiVirus Software - It is imperitive that you update your Antivirus software at least once a week (Even more if you wish). If you do not update your antivirus software then it will not be able to catch any of the new variants that may come out.

  • Use a Firewall - I can not stress how important it is that you use a Firewall on your computer. Without a firewall your computer is succeptible to being hacked and taken over. I am very serious about this and see it happen almost every day with my clients. Simply using a Firewall in its default configuration can lower your risk greatly.

    For a tutorial on Firewalls and a listing of some available ones see the link below:

    Understanding and Using Firewalls

  • Visit Microsoft's Windows Update Site Frequently - It is important that you visit http://www.windowsupdate.com regularly. This will ensure your computer has always the latest security updates available installed on your computer. If there are new updates to install, install them immediately, reboot your computer, and revisit the site until there are no more critical updates.

  • Install Ad-Aware - Install and download Ad-Aware. ou should also scan your computer with program on a regular basis just as you would an antivirus software in conjunction with Spybot.

    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:

    Using Ad-aware to remove Spyware, Malware, & Hijackers from Your Computer

  • Install SpywareBlaster - SpywareBlaster will added a large list of programs and sites into your Internet Explorer settings that will protect you from running and downloading known malicious programs.

    A tutorial on installing & using this product can be found here:

    Using SpywareBlaster to protect your computer from Spyware and Malware

  • Update all these programs regularly - Make sure you update all the programs I have listed regularly. Without regular updates you WILL NOT be protected when new malicious programs are released.
Follow this list and your potential for being infected again will reduce dramatically.

Here are some additional utilities that will enhance your safety
  • IE/Spyad <= IE/Spyad places over 4000 websites and domains in the IE Restricted list which will severely impair attempts to infect your system. It basically prevents any downloads (Cookies etc) from the sites listed, although you will still be able to connect to the sites.
  • MVPS Hosts file <= The MVPS Hosts file replaces your current HOSTS file with one containing well know ad sites etc. Basically, this prevents your coputer from connecting to those sites by redirecting them to 127.0.0.1 which is your local computer
  • Google Toolbar <= Get the free google toolbar to help stop pop up windows.
  • Winpatrol <= Download and install the free version of Winpatrol. a tutorial for this product is located here:
    Using Winpatrol to protect your computer from malicious software
Stand Up and Be Counted ---> Malware Complaints <--- where you can make difference!

The site offers people who have been (or are) victims of malware the opportunity to document their story and, in that way, launch a complaint against the malware and the makers of the malware.

Also, please read this great article by Tony Klein So How Did I Get Infected In First Place

Happy surfing and stay clean!
